Newbie veggie oil question

Post by Spacetractor » Fri Sep 20, 2019 11:29 am

So I bought a 92 Mitsubishi delica l300 last November, and with a wvo conversion. The tank is stored inside the van, and I removed it, because I was doing a camper van conversion. I’m almost done with the build now, and I’m ready to install the tank again, do I need to bleed the lines, when I connect them again? Or am I good to put the wvo in and go? Also the tank had foam around it, so you know what the purpose of that was? It is pretty beat up, so I don’t think I can use it again, should I get new foam to put around it? It does not have a tank heater in it.
Thank you!

The foam would for insulation. WVO doesn't flow well at lower temps. Oil that goes back to the tank will be warmer from passing through the IP and near the engine. If you're only planning on using WVO during the summer then the insulation is not important. Then again if you're only going to run WVO in the summer, you don't need a two tank system.

Thank you for the reply! Do I need to bleed the fuel lines when I put the tank back in or would I be good to go once the lines are connected again?
